Next semester I need to take Math history and Math for Secondary Teachers, which I think will be quite easy. But I am also looking into taking Advanced Calculus, Modern Algebra, and Mathematical Stats/Prob. As math electives and to get into the MS Pure Math program.

Descriptions:

-Advanced Calc: A rigorous development of the differential and integral calculus of functions of one real variable.

-Modern Alg: Groups, rings, homomorphisms, premutation groups, quotient structure, ideal theory, fields.

-Stats/Prob: An intoduction to probability including combinatorics, Bayes' theorem, probability densities, expectation, variance, and correlation. An Introduction to estimation, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing.

Now I do not think this will be that bad, because I do not work and I have no life. Also I do not think Math History, Secondary Math, and Stats will be tough classes. So my question is that is there anyone who thinks that this is a bad idea?

If you are wondering why I would take all of these classes in one semester here is why: 4 of them are fall only! (stats is f/sp/su). And there is no way I can take them the following fall. Also, I can easily not take stats, but it fits my schedule perfectly. (If I did not take stats I would be taking either a science elective or a computer science elective).

Edit... I just found a "science" elective that fits the same time as Stats, so I think I will do it with the other 4 math classes
